American actor Hilary Swank is all set to join the cast of politically charged action-thriller `The Hunt`.

Coming from screenwriters Damon Lindelof and Nick Cuse, the film`s cast already include Iike Barinholtz, Emma Roberts, Justin Hartley and Glenn Howerton, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Craig Zobel, who had previously worked with Lindelof and Cuse on HBO`s `The Leftovers`, will helm the movie.

The film is expected to roll out soon as Universal has scheduled it for a September 27 release.

Jason Blum will be producing, alongside Lindelof and Cuse and Zobel will be the executive producers.

Swank is a two-time Oscar winner popularly known for her role in `Boys Don`t Cry`, `I Am Mother` and `Million Dollar Baby`.

Her other stints include Netflix`s upcoming space drama `Away` for which she has been roped in to play the lead. The series is loosely inspired by Chris Jones` article of the same name and is described as being about hope, humanity and how we need one another if we are to embark on a journey of achieving impossible things.

Netflix has issued a 10-episode order for the show. Apart from starring as the main lead, Swank will also serve as executive producer
